It is supposed to be the same 1.4 Duratorq engine of Fiesta.

It will be a success if it is launched with tyres having high aspect ratio. And price of parts also has to be taken care of, otherwise it will be a failure.

At authorised Ford A.S.S. , parts will be exorbitantly priced!

If the 1.4 TDCi was introduced on the Ikon, i am sure it would keep the sales registers ringing, although the Fiesta 1.4TDCi sales would take a direct hit.
Ford always messes up with pricing

and thats 60k more than safari tcic..... and also comes into the range of safari dicor.
In my case i would buy the safari tcic instead of the fiesta 1.4 deisel.
i guess ford should keep an eye in this perspective as well.

Enginewise, 3.0 Dicor is no match for Duratorque or DDiS.

But, as a package, the TATA Safari DiCOR will defenitly have an edge over the Ford Fusion. Specially at similar price levels.

Its like choosing a Indigo TDi over a Swift DDIS, both cater to different segments.

You can comapre a OMNI with a Tata 407, now can you

Actually, no harm there...
Dicor 3.0 has the basic engine taken from 407D.
So we can actually compare 407D with all of them - Safari, Omni, Scorpio, Innova.

Yesterday, I saw an add by Tata motors for one of their LCV (708D, I think). The biggest point they made there was - now 708D comes with a power steering!

What a pitty. My thoughts are always with those truck and bus drivers who get a lot of criticism from car owners for lane indescipline, stopping in the middle without pulling over to the side...I always feel it's not their fault. It's Tatas who give them a heavy steering that can be used to build biceps and clutch that requires a heavy rock to beplaced on it to operate and a gear shift lever that vibrates like a wiper...

Just got a call from the local ford dealer, fusion D is set to launch on 16th July. The dealer had no clue about the pricing or variants..just the launch date.

Woah - now this news is the opposite of what my ears picked up. I heard a sparrow , the Magnum had topsy-turvied all price points for diesels and the Ford guys were having a long re-think on the launch of the Fusion.

Lets hope what you say is correct and lets hope that Ford gets the pricing right for once.

A TCIC over a Common Rail? Well, to each his own but I would say that the buyer profiles would be quite different (Fusion TDCi vs Safari TCIC)
